Yvonne M. Smith Ph.D., RN, CNS

As an educator, I have taught several courses in the undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. My current responsibilities include coordination of the Nursing and Health Care Management concentration in the MSN program. 

As a nurse researcher, my interest is in curriculum and instruction in nursing education. My previous mixed methods research explored nursing faculty perceptions of experiences, strategies and intensity while teaching in the online environment. Building on this work, I am interested in evaluating how building relationships in nursing education and practice influence both learning and practice related outcomes. I have participated in multiple self-studies of teaching practices as a qualitative research methodology.
